If you are reading this Blog, I am sure you thought about which option(s) you may benefit most from and since we want to approach each section in a comprehensive manner with ample before and after pictures, we have chosen to approach this topic as a six part “Mini” series. We hope that this mini series Blog will shed a light into how you can achieve a slimmer profile.
For patients with pockets of fat under the chin (submental) area often coupled with generous fatty fullness along the jaw line resulting in poor delineation of jawline and neck area, ideal surgery would be SMJ (Submental-jowl) liposuction. My preference is for laser assisted liposuction using Smartlipo technique for quicker recovery and better contouring effect from use of the laser. We also love to combine the liposuction with InMode Embrace RF Facetite technique for patients who desires more skin tightening along their jawline and neck area and even quicker recovery time.
For patients who present with the Classic “apple cheeks” contour giving them a bit of fullness like holding onto nuts inside the cheeks, I recommend removing the excess fat in the Buccal space to slim down the excessively rotund contour to their cheeks. Roughly half the patient will also elect to undergo chin/neck/lower face liposuction at the same same for optimal slenderized appearance of both their contour and profile. When a patient comes with only marginal or subtle buccal fullness, we usually advise on holding off buccal fat removal because many will lose their buccal fat with aging. Very often in subtle situations, I ask my patients to look no further than their parents to see how much fat they have lost with aging.
